Kros Strain Brewing
A Note on This Beer
As you may know, the magical winged fairy went extinct back in 1914. Or was that the Passenger Pigeon? I’m always getting those two mixed up.
In any case, actual magical fairies are hard to come by these days. But, if you want some Fairy Nectar, the crew at Kros Strain has you covered!
Outside of Nebraska, this stuff is almost as rare as fairies themselves! In fact, this is the first time we’ve ever gotten the OG version of Fairy Nectar IPA — thirsty Corn Huskers usually drink it all up before we get a chance at it!
We’ve managed to get a couple other brews from the Fairy Nectar series, including one that took home GABF Silver. And you all loved them; they all scored 4+ on Tavour!
But, this original version — the Crown Prince of Fairy Town — always eluded us. Until today!
You don’t have to drive to Omaha, because today you can bathe your taste buds in hoppy flavors of ruby red grapefruit, ripe tropical mango, and tangy tangerine at home. And, since Fairy Nectar comes all wrapped up in an ultra-smooth and sippable body, you can drink it all day!
It’s like your tongue is a tiny little fairy with sparkly wings taking a bath in a tulip petal. But, instead of boring old rainwater, it’s full of juicy IPA!
Kros Strain is Thrillist’s Best Brewery in Nebraska!

Pleasantly surprised from such a local-ish brewery. Very smooth and almost floral. Also, LOVE the can art.
Pretty good hazy. Not the best I’ve had but definitely drinkable
Great can design, beer was average but good
Great beer. Smooth but with a lot of depth.
Notes of grapefruit & citrus but still a definite hop presence. Love the smooth mouthfeel and bitter end.
Good, solid easy drinking but nothing to write home about.
Nice beer. Nothing overly special, heavy on the grapefruit.
Nice looking beer, hazy for sure, but not quite juicy enough. Citrus and hop bitterness are up front, overshadowing any softness this beer may have.
Grapefruit came on a little too strong for me, felt a little too bitter than usual.
Loved it, not too complex and the right amount of bitterness, could drink it everyday
Great juicy flavor.
Light and delicious
Easy drinking beer, light on flavors. Non-offensive
